Question

Spawning many droplets for a short time

Hey all,

For my project I need to spawn multiple droplets for a few hours, randomly. Is this something that is OK to do in digital ocean? It could spawn 100 droplets in a few hours and keep them all running for 6 hours or seomthing, afte Also, what is the average time it takes for a droplet to be created with the API?

thanks in advance, Jorik
